Short post today, since my energy level is approximating that of a sloth. Hank and I had some sort of quickie bug over the weekend, and it has morphed into an energy-sucking cold. Not a big deal, but it's really kicking my butt. I'm also in that final 8 week stretch of my pregnancy. I can't complain at all, I really feel great most of the time. But I can feel my sciatica ramping up a tad, and the general discomforts of the final weeks starting to settle in. That's totally expected, and it'll be over soon, but the combo with the cold this week is pretty challenging.
It's ok, because above all, I'm SO, SO excited about the baby coming. And this all means that the baby is coming soon. But I definitely need more rest right now. I tend to not slow down for anything, even advanced pregnancy, and sometimes, I need to cut myself some slack. My right eyelid has been twitching a lot of late, and I know it's from fatigue. I feel super rundown. We'll get there.
I'm still doing my Lenten reading, but after that, it's back to the birthing books, and this time, I'm optimistic about being up for the challenge. Book reviews to come. :)
